This article describes the new Ansys Zemax licensing based on FlexLM and links to additional articles to licensing configuration and information related to them. This applies to Zemax Ansys licensed products released as of July 2022.
If you have been assigned a legacy Zemax license number starting with L or T such as L100000 or a USB license (numbered from 22000-40999) these guides do not apply to you.
